Poderi dal Nespoli 1929 Famoso
Famoso is an obscure grape (yes, it does translate to “famous”) native to the northeastern region of Italy. Nearly obliterated by phylloxera in the late 19th century, only two rows of the grape remained until it was rediscovered in the late 1900’s. While only a small amount is currently planted in Romagna (around 30 acres), the four generations of winemakers at Poderi dal Nespoli made it their mission to highlight and revitalize Famoso. Highly aromatic and with a chalky-but-pleasant texture, this wine evokes tropical fruits, pear, and stone fruits. The label reads “Be a star,” and this wine is sure to sparkle with its captivating and seductive flavors.
